Hey Marco, i'm from the UK so i've probably seen you on telly then. I applied for the BBC about five years ago when i left college but back then I had very little actual experience. From your post Aunty Beeb definitely get there moneys worth from you....thats quite a work load you have there. If I was you i would spend alot of my free time drinking!

talking about crazy stories i was late for work one morning and was going a bit too quick in the frost (about 80) when i hit ice spun of the road rolled the car three times and killed a cow in the process......and climbed out the window with only a little broken rib. ooops! i stagerd along the road and knocked on the farmers door and sayd "eeh i think i've just killed one of your cows mate". probably not the kind of story you look for but that christmas all i got were cow keyrings and little toys that mooed!. I supose its funny now when i think back (not for the cow though)

Andy.

Now please understand i DO NOT MAKE PORN what we make is Fetish Bondage and S&M movies with no sex involved! and is completly different. Beeing only 25 i think i am the youngest person in the industry. If any uk resedents want to chat i will be exihibitioning at the ETO show at The NEC 24-25 July stand E20.

working the dream, dreaming the work

I'm producer, director, owner of Big Heart Productions in Uganda. We have filmed in Uganda, Sudan, Congo, Tanzania, Rwanda, Kenya and South Africa. After making a couple of documentaries here in 1999, I loaded up the family and moved to Uganda from Texas. While starting a fish farm and some small partnerships to help widows, orphans, and the poor I received offers to do documentary work here. Last year we opened BHP in Kampala and have never looked back. If you want to make the leap, remember; Failure can not contend with Persistence. Best Regards, Rand

I'm one of those guys who has a normal job - except it's 6-5 most days (some 5-6's, too). I handle accounting, estimating and customer service for the business. If you want a fancy title, I guess it would be office manager.

I've had a great deal of interest in computers, but I'm not sure how my interest began in video. I'm looking at starting a business taping weddings and other miscellaneous work. I stumbled accross this website when searching about the XL2 and the XL H1 - the two cameras that I think would suit me well.

Anyhow, hopefully I will have some information to share in the years to come.

I'm a freelance editor, motion graphic designer and camera op living in Vail, Colorado. I guess you'd say I'm under contract working for Action Television here. I edit nationally televised poker and golf shows. Soon to be world wide televised I think. I also created the graphics packages for the shows and to a few spots every once in a while too. Spot work is my goal, but for now episodic TV shows will have to do.

I do it all. Motion graphics/post, video editing, shooting, audio and web cast, 3D Animation, and some layout for print.

Background: Eight years in the US Navy, served onboard the USS Saratoga, based in Mayport FL, did three tours in the Mediteranean.

Worked six years as a product development engineer, designing, building and testing medical catheters.

Presently live in Pennsylvania, working as the Multimedia Developer for an international medical device company for the last six years.

Being an in-house guru has it's benefits. I get to learn new techniques, have access to the latest hardware and software, and enjoy the benefits of steady pay, health care, and 401k.

Aspirations: I still have much to learn, and would like to experiment with creating my own movies (who doesn't?).

A bit on me I guess

I was exposed to liner editing and camera work at my old HS. I later attened and grad from the Art Institute of Philadelphia with a BS in Media Arts and Animation. I do a bit of everything, 3d product design, Motion graphics, Layout print work, but my passion is editing and directing. Two years ago I help start a music video program with a few -then- friends, the name of the show was Da' Underground. After a few years we parted ways and I went on to do my own editing and directing. I directed my first music video just last summer:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...616389&q=slang

From this I've been contracted to direct another muisc video for a spanish rap group, and I'm in the pre-production stages of a HDV Short to be shot on the Canon XL H1 with a cine kit. So thats me in a nut shell.

Been on this forum for a while, I can't remember if I have replied to this thread but I just had to respond to Chris's reply. I don't own the company but I do the same thing you do, in addition to full on porn.
I shot a 5 set DVD with my friend from Kyoto who is a S/M Mistress and she is also a corset designer and we made a fetish/shibari/S/M DVD set, no sex involved just nicely shot fetish stuff.

That DVD was seen by the president of the company my friend worked at (porn company in Osaka) and he liked it and distributed the DVD's in Japan. Then the company hired me to make all their dvd's after my friend left that job to go to Tokyo. Now I shoot(XL-2), edit(FCP) and author DVDs(DVD SP3) for an indy porn company here in Osaka.

It would be cool to talk with you and compare notes/DVD's so send me an email.

I am currently making a second short film with a friend, we did the first one 3 years ago, I'd much rather go in this direction but hey, I gotta pay the bills and right now, this job is paying way more than the job I had shooting weddings.

I'm upgrading my digital camera setup with real strobes and maybe going up to the new Nikon D200 and I plan to start taking a lot more photos, another friend who is also an S/M Mistress and I will make a fetish photo book so I will spend the next year taking photos of her and having exhibits.

I've read so many posts over the past few months, I finally decided to join DV Network. Thanks to all of you for your posts as it's always interesting to hear the opinions of others.

I'm a sixth grade teacher in Corona, CA. I became interested in making videos as an after school activity with my students. I help the kids produce end-of-the-month highlight videos for my entire school. We tape all the special events on campus: from the dance, to "everyone wear green day" to our own character education segments. Now, after a couple years of success with that venture, I'm going to start a small event videography side-business, capturing weddings, corporate work, and other projects, as opportunities present themselves.

I've decided on a pair of Sony HDR FX1's and various other necessary pieces of equipment. Looking forward to sharing and learning in the weeks and months and years to come.

Good to hear from you Gerald, and good luck with your future video projects. Just a thought though - your 'pair of FX1s' for wedding and events might be better split as a Z1 and an HC1. Why? Purely for the audio capabilities of the z1 over the FX1.

Weddings have very important sound tracks, and unless you're thinking of bolting a Beachtek underneath the FX1, your audio options will be somewhat curtailed.

Z1 as primary and HC1 as second camera for wedding shoot?

Thanks Tom...I was actually considering the beachtek solution. But now that you mention it, a Z1 would be awesome. Just wonder if mixing the hc1 footage with the Z1 footage from a dual camera wedding shoot would pose any noticable differences visually...I'm guessing not significantly. Thanks so much for your post!

Gerald

The news is that they intercut beautifully. The sad news is that the HC1 is discontinued and the toy-town HC3 replaces it, so act fast if you want one. The other sad news is that the HC1 is only so-so in low light - something like 2 stops slower than the FX1, so not ideal for 'romantically lit' weddings.

I'm a film student :P

I detest it when people mix up Film And Media (Stoners watching Tarantino) with actual film production syllabus.

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and found it searching for info about a mic for my Canon Optura 40. I live in Florida and teach technology classes to elementary students part-time and am trying to get a video business going.

I started creating custom DVD's for special occasions like anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, etc. using clients photos and home videos. I love the emotion these type of videos generate! I've recently gotten a few projects from realtors and a developer where I'll be shooting the video and taking photos for the project. So much to learn.....I'll be checking this forum regularly and appreciate any and all input.
